Sykid87 has a couple of kiss-ass net friends
I hate feeling like the only one in a city that loves/knows of sonic youth, Does anyone else feel the same way? I'm in sacramento, California.

Hell yes are you kidding aside from my husband nearly no oneknows, or it is a small group that are very quiet about it. I have no understanding of how I became me growing up here, but then again I stick out everywhere I go not just my home territory.

I play guitar in alternate tunings like Sonic Youth. Try finding like minded musicians. WOW

the only Sonic Youth fans I know in Worcester are my kids. I'm sure there's more I just don't know them.

I've always been able to find whatever few SY fans existed in whatever town I lived in. In HS it was just a few that mainly knew the "grunge years" stuff (goo/dirty), but still....

Sonic Youth aren't always an easy band to get into...I respect any ear that can appreciate 'em....even if SY fans happen to sometimes be the biggest music snobs on the planet.

haha. very true.

I just wish I could find a guitarist who played and wrote songs in alternate tunings. That would be a thrill for me... I have NEVER found such a person.

Standard does feel a little limited, sometimes. It's mainly all I use these days...but then again, my playing has been much more straight forward.

SUPPOSED to be starting a little band with my friend Cameron. He's really into Modern Lovers, SY, the VU....so, I might be getting back into that alternate tuning thing for some stuff, even though jam sessions this far are kinda going in a Junior Kimbrough meets VU type of thing. We'll see what happens. I'm supposed to be playing lead.

Cool. I have been playing in strictly alternate tunings for the last 15 years! I'll never go back.

The best part is handing some douchey guitar player my alternately tuned guitar and them trying to impress but end up sounding like Creed Shreds or whatever. Classic!

I've found that most people I've asked about Sonic Youth tend to fall into one of two camps, depending on their age; the "Yeah, I remember those guys! They're still around?" camp and the "I think I might've heard of them...what song do they play?" camp.

But I've also found there are more SY fans in my town than you may think. It's sort of like some kind of secret club that no one talks about except with other members.

i'm always the only person in my area. all of my friends refer to me as "the guy who likes sonic youth". and when that movie Juno came out, almost everyone i know told me that they mentioned sonic youth in it.

I had this exact experience! Weird. I used to be the only guy I knew who was a fan, so I basically kept making my friends listen to them until there were more. At uni now, so obviously I met a few more recently.

to my big surprise, there are many folks in my area who are into Sonic Youth.
what is even better, is that they all view me as the greatest Sonic Youth fan ever.

"sonic youth????? i thought they finished with about 20 years ago...didnt they rip off nirvana and then broke up??? isnt one of them dead???" true story, true conversation with someone only last week. he is now a dedicated santana fan, i thought or presumed he was dead about 35 years.....go figure!

seriously, i was fortunate that most of my mates are very like minded when it comes to music, we all grew up with indie rock...pixies, sy, babes, nirvana, buttholes etc etc etc and we still all kinda listen to similar things so its great to chew to fat with a guy and discuss face to face the greatness of say the new swans album......

And I'm pretty sure there's record stores and rock concerts in sacramento where you can go and hang out and possibly meet people.
The thread starter either doesn't know enough people or hangs out with the "wrong" kind of people.

And there's other bands too. Fuck Sonic Youth!

I was also bombarded by friends and casual aquaintances telling me how Juno had a "funny line" about Sonic Youth.

SONIC YOUTH RULES ALL.
